I Like to Practice!

Proficient is a consequence of practice & it seems to me that practice gives us the space to make mistakes, learn, improve & grow into proficiency. So these are the things that I am continually practicing:

  • Gratitude – I’m not sure that we can ever be fully proficient with being thankful, so let’s keep practicing
  • Forgiveness – it’s hard to forgive, particularly when a person who is very close to us causes us pain, but just because something is hard doesn’t mean we should quit trying; indeed, the person who gets the most benefit from is the forgiver more than the recipient
  • Learning – let’s be curious about beneficial things & not stuff that’s meaningless or hurtful
  • Patience – uggggh, this one can really get under my skin, which means I desperately need to practice it more so it’s not such a weak spot

So what would be good for you to start practicing more over this weekend?

welcome to Morocco!

What an amazing place!  I’m presently in Fez Morocco, where U2 wrote / made almost half of their last CD.  This place is simply amazing.  The people are very warm, friendly, welcoming.  We walked around the Medina & it was almost ethereal – sights, sounds, smells, people, . . . . all very riveting.

I’m going to attach several pictures because I think they can say more than my words 🙂
